Tasting Notes

The Fuligni Estate spreads over approximately one hundred fully-cultivated hectares of land in an almost continual strip on the eastern side of Montalcino where, historically, the most authentic production of Brunello emerged. The vines, which extend over ten hectares, are primarily located at Cottimelli at altitudes varying from 380 to 450 meters above sea level. Here, the land, which predominantly faces east, belongs entirely to the Santa Fiora (marl) geological formation of Eocene origin and is made up of a prevalently rocky terrain.

Provenance

This Toronto collector kept his family in mind when buying these bottles. It all started when he learned that his wife enjoyed German Rieslings and sweeter wine in general. Exclusively purchased through the LCBO vintages group, he was able amass a wide range of late-harvest and Pradikat-level Rieslings and Pinot Gris.When his daughter entered medical school, this collector began buying wines with the word “Dr.” in it, like the infamous Dr. Loosen. She would bring these with her to gatherings with her peers throughout her degree. It was also in this time that he began buying her half bottles, so she would never have to feel bad about opening a full bottle on her own.The Summerhill and Bayview Village mall LCBO locations knew this collector well and would often hand-select cases for him - though it was not abnormal to find him scouring Toronto’s best LCBO’s for his favourite wines if he knew he could find extras.This collection was stored in a private home cellar. Expertly built by the collector, he sawed and sanded each of the wooden bottle neck holders. When he ran out of space on the shelves, he carefully stored excess bottles in terracotta holders raised from the floor. Everything was monitored, including temperature and humidity, and kept the cellar locked at all times with the key hidden.It is very uncommon today to find a cellar filled with such exquisitely-stored German and Alsatian gems. In a time where Bordeaux and Burgundy are topping the charts for wine collectors, these bottles are now in their prime drinking years and are proving a wonderful opportunity for for wine lovers to appreciate some of the best mature white wines in the World!
